Generally, you do not need to change the default multipathing settings your host uses for a specific storage device. However, if you want to make any changes, you can use the Edit Multipathing Policies dialog box to modify a path selection policy and specify the preferred path for the Fixed policy. You can also use this dialog box to change multipathing for SCSI-based protocol endpoints.

1

Browse to the host in the vSphere Web Client navigator.

2

Click the Manage tab, and click Storage.

3

Click Storage Devices or Protocol Endpoints.

4

Select the item whose paths you want to change and click the Properties tab.

5

Under Multipathing Policies, click Edit Multipathing.

Select a path policy.

By default, VMware supports the following path selection policies. If you have a third-party PSP installed on your host, its policy also appears on the list.

Fixed (VMware)

Most Recently Used (VMware)

Round Robin (VMware)

For the fixed policy, specify the preferred path.

Click OK to save your settings and exit the dialog box.
